Can a Bearded Dragon eat this insect? Answered

I'm not sure what the name of this insect is, but in Houston, Tx we have a lot of them. I want to know if it is healthy for a Bearded Dragon to eat this insect, and if so how often? I don't own a BD yet but I plan on buying one. If anybody has any suggestions on some materials that I can read to prepare me for it, I would appreciate it a bunch.

Your insect is a june bug or a cockchafer Best let your Bearded dragon decide if it can eat it or not.

Yeah, or at least ask the person that you obtain the dragon from. I'm sure that he/she has probably fed it at least once.
